Niantic has pushed live a new software update for Pokémon GO on Android, which brings the augmented reality app to version 0.33.0.

This update reminds players not to play while driving, addresses a bug that prevented Poké Ball throws from awarding XP bonuses, lets Trainers change their nickname once, and delivers more fixes beyond this.

The update notes outline the following improvements that have been made to Pokémon GO:

  • Added a dialog to remind Trainers that they should not play while traveling above a certain speed. Trainers must confirm they are not driving in order to continue playing.
  • Made improvements to the accuracy of a curveball throw
  • Fixed a bug that prevented ”Nice,” ”Great,” and “Excellent” Poké Ball throws from awarding the appropriate XP bonuses.
  • Fixed achievements showing incorrect Medal icons.
  • Enabled the ability for Trainers to change their nickname one time. Please choose your new nickname wisely.
  • Resolved issues with the battery saver mode on iOS and re-enabled the feature.
  • Added visuals of Team Leaders Candela, Blanche, and Spark.
  • We’re currently testing a variation of the “Nearby Pokémon” feature with a subset of users. During this period you may see some variation in the nearby Pokémon UI.
  • Minor text fixes
